What would you suspect given these test results?

Gliadin AB IGA- 8 (Negative less than 11) Results were 15 in March

IGG- 100 (Positive, over 17)

Also, blood tests showed anemia.

We have a family history of celiac disease, and an appt. with a Pediatric GI in 2 weeks.

With celiac in the family I would think there is something going on.

Also there could be IgA deficiency which is causing the IgA results to come back normal when otherwise it would be positive.

I would get the full celiac panel with the tTG and EMA(very specific for celiac)

FYI-The tTG test may be taking place of a biopsy for diagnosis in kids in the near future. There is an article on it on the celiac.com homepage. Here is the link: http://www.celiac.co...l?p_prodid=1160

Anemia is linked with celiac as well.

Thank you for taking the time to respond. My pediatrician's office said the results were negative for gluten enteropathy (sp?) (don't even know if that is the same as celiac?) but I don't have too much faith in some of what they have to say. :P

Fortunately, given my toddler's failure to thrive diagnosis they made the referral to the Pediatric GI. I would think they would have a little better of an idea what is going on?

Oh, and the Igg should have read greater than 100. I guess they stopped counting at 100.
